Thanks so much for an excellent seminar! Although I don't have or work for a practice, I do end up advising folks about retirement issues, though I keep it as general as possible. This social security information will be very helpful when asked about benefits that folks might be able to expect. I truly appreciate it!

I put a couple of "Neutral" ratings is just because the knowledge and skill learned in this program does not apply to my job, but it's a good knowledge and skill for a CPA to learn.
